It's not quite Spring yet - not quite...but almost.
It's so close now I can literally smell it. Like a Summer storm on the breeze, the smell of rain in the air, Spring is just around the corner and I'm so excited.
So while I wait patiently, watching Winter idly disappear with its decay and hibernation I keep searching for those tell-tale signs.
Early blossom on the trees and pussy willow buds all soft and tactile. Daffs in bloom, crocuses gathered in clusters and hyacinths giving off their almost overpowering aroma...though some are starting to make (already) an appearance in the stores.
Until then I keep my wellies firmly on my feet, squelching through those puddles of mud and wrapped up warm against the elements.
Not long now, Spring is on the way - not quite...but almost.
Have a beautiful weekend.
